New Tennis District for Broncos

The move of classifications from 4A to 5A for the Broncos was simply because the U.I.L. create a new 6A division.  However with the move also came district realignment.  Gone from the Denton High School district are Guyer, Nelson and Lake Dallas, however unlike the other sports at DHS there are no new schools in the tennis district.  The result is that there are only 5 schools in the tennis district this season, Denton, Azle, Brewer, Rider and Wichita Falls High.  The new season starts for the Bronco Netters on August 20th. District 5-5A play begins September 16th versus Rider.
